Advance tickets on sale for Choir of Clare College

The Choir of Clare College

Acclaimed by BBC Music Magazine for its “sweeping energy and rich detail” and The New York Times for demonstrating “brilliant execution” and a “distinctive sense of character,” the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in England. Led by Director of Music Timothy Brown, the choir has toured widely throughout Europe, the United States, Asia and the Middle East.

The choir will bring their program “In Quires and Places Where They Sing” to Emory’s Schwartz Center on Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. Featuring Nicholas Mogg, flute, and organists Ashok Gupta and Nicolas Haigh, the program reflects the choir’s practice of Evensong, an evening-time Anglican service of chorally-rendered prayers which the Clare College Choir participates in three nights a week during their university term.

The music includes pieces sung at these services and highlights the interest the choir has in new compositions.

Special advance single ticket sales for this concert begin Thursday, July 29. Tickets ($30; Emory faculty, staff and discount category members $20; all students $10) are available from the Arts at Emory box office at 404-727-5050.
